One great thing about the bye week, the Dallas Cowboys are finally getting healthy. After struggling through the first four games, especially at cornerback and wide receiver, Dallas should have its full cast of characters at both positions.
The good news is that Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Orlando Scandrick are all practicing as of Wednesday. Gerald Sensabaugh is showing no ill effects from his concussion and even special teams ace Danny McCray is back at practice. The cornerbacks, safeties and wide receivers should be all systems go.
The bad news, Jason Hatcher is still missing and is likely going to miss the game. Hatcher was having a great start to the year, we need him back at some point soon. Also still missing are Derrick Dockery and Tony Fiametta.
